MTU Aero Engines & EASA: Towards requirements for H2-powered propulsion

November 2021. MTU Aero Engines partners with the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to investigate ways forward for possible certification of a flying fuel cell (FFC). The hydrogen-powered fuel cell is a promising propulsion concept on the way to emission-free flying and part of MTU’s Clean Air Engine (Claire) technology agenda. Safety is a top priority in aviation, which is why entirely new standards, approval regulations and verification procedures must be defined for the safe operation of the new FFC propulsion concept.

Together with the German Aerospace Center DLR, the engine manufacturer is developing and validating a fuel cell powertrain. A Do228 aircraft will serve as a technology platform and flight demonstrator, equipped and tested in the coming years with a H2-powered fuel cell and a single-sided electric propeller drive.
